On the subject of servos, I highly recommend using AE #27128 servo washers (seen in the post above). These lock the servo down very well, especially when using only three screws to mount it.

Final question: Car is put together but it seems alot more noisy than other models. At first I thought that perhaps I got some ca in some of the cogs in the front spool causing it to slip; I gently milled out what I thought was wrong and that helped but until I switched the spool around so that the grove around the cup is pointing to the right, then it got a little quieter, The belt seems it liked to jump in the front but it doesn't do that really now.

But it still noisier than it should be; any thoughts?

I'm running low cam, position 6 in the front and position 7 i believe in the rear; belts too tight?

i think there will be

looking at the pics of the diff, it would really only be a matter of shimming it 2mm towards the centre for it to line up

Hey guys, I'm new to onroad What gearing would you recommend for TC7.2 running a 13.5T motor? What FDR would you recommend?
Thinking of getting Trinity monster or R1 motor.
Also, are there any spurs I can purchase for TC7.2 that are less that 80T and will fit straight on?

What are you guys using to set the bulkheads? I've seen bulkhead tools online but I've never actually built my cars with bulkhead alignment tools. Is there one available for AE chassis?

This video from Randy Caster @ 1UP is really helpful. The carbon is very precise and allows everything to self center if you do it correctly.
